JANS – COVID 19 impacted us all in ways we could not even begin to image. “The Filmmaker’s Bash”, the signature fundraising event for NMHS Unlimited Film Productions, a Mississippi-based 501(c)3 film company, was one of the casualties. 

For seven years, the ever-popular “Filmmaker’s Bash” showcased the talents of some of Mississippi’s finest up and coming chefs who competed for the coveted “Top Chef” Award. Previous participants included Nick Wallace, Nick Wallace Culinary; Rashanna Newsome, The Manship Wood Fired Kitchen; Kendrick Gordon, One Guy Steak & Chicken; Grant Nooe, Grant’s Kitchen; Mike Roemhild, Table 100; Damian Shelby, King Edward; Jeremy Enfinger, County Seat, and Marilyn Kithuka, Gumbo Girl. With the “Filmmaker’s Bash” as their launching pad, many have gone on to achieve national prominence. 

2024 will be the eighth year for the Filmmaker’s Bash which includes the Filmmaker’s Bash Chefs’ Competition. The chefs’ competition is an invitation only event for chefs whose clientele have recommended them. 

This year, chefs are to prepare any one dish that is most representative of the theme, “Celebrating the Soul of the South”, for guests to sample. The event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 3, 2024, at the Two Mississippi Museums from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Two awards will be presented: “Top Bash Chef” and “People’s Choice Award”. 

For the second year of this event, sous chefs will also be able to compete for the “Top Sous Chef” Award. They are to create an hors d’oeuvre which best showcases their talents. The same judging criteria will apply. The winning sous chef then qualifies to compete in the “Top Bash Chef” competition in 2025. 

NMHS Unlimited Film Productions, a Mississippi-based 501(c)3 company, specializes in celebrating untold stories about Mississippi history. Proceeds from this event support NMHS Unlimited Film Productions’ efforts to document Mississippi history, mentor young filmmakers, and support the development of educational products and services for use in various public and private institutions throughout the country and beyond. 

Tickets may be purchased at www.blackhistoryplus.com. No tickets will be available at the door.
